    From the legendary 1840, Fonseca's first Vintage Port release, to the superb declared vintages of the last decade, the house has produced a succession of highly acclaimed wines even in the most adverse moments of history. James Suckling, in his authoritative book on Vintage Port, put it as follows:  "The vintage Ports of Fonseca are perhaps the most consistently great of them all. Not only do they have a striking fleshiness and powerful richness when young, but they retain that youthfulness for decades." It is a blend of wines produced from white grapes grown mainly on the upper slopes of the Douro Valley.  The grapes used include the Arinto, Malvasia Fina, Codega, Esgana Cão, Folgasão, Gouveio, Viosinho and Rabigato varieties. The individual wines are aged in oak vats for about three years, where they acquire mellowness and character.  They are blended to produce a rich white port in the traditional smooth, full-bodied style. Rich, fragrant nose with aromas of mellow fruit and hints of honey and oak. Full body, velvety palate and long flavour some finish. Fonseca White is traditionally served chilled as an aperitif. It can also be drunk - poured over ice in a glass, topped up with tonic and a leaf of fresh mint. Accompanied by salted almonds or olives, it is an excellent aperitif  
  • Quinta da Devesa was included in the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region, created by Baron Forrester in 1844. Acquired by Fortunato family in 1941. Since then it has been an independent family company, dedicated to the production of port wine. Located in the transition zone from Baixo Corgo to Cima Corgo, and only 10 kms away from Peso da Régua, Quinta da Devesa vineyards and winery are located on a promontory which overlooks the confluence of the rivers Douro and Corgo, from here you can see the valleys, rivers and mountains of the region all in one place. This 10 Year Old White Port is obtained from a selection of grape varieties recommended for the Douro region. The ageing process occurs naturally over the years, in oak vats at Quinta da Devesa cellars, thus resulting in a darkened colour. This high quality 10 year white port is beautifully presented in a presentation box and is a leader amongst aged white ports on the market. Clear golden colour. Intense aroma, with predominating dried fruits, vanilla and spices. The palate is intense, well balanced acidity in the sweetness. Fab with savoury white wine chicken in a creamy sauce, slightly salted almonds, it also works well alongside a tray of gruyere, olives, and charcuterie
